Hallmarks match on both case parts.
Case maker "BN" for Benjamin Norton, seen 1825-1840, registered July 1824, Banner Street, St Luke's, London.
William Atwood II of Lewes, Sussex, born 1795, married 1817-1845, son of William Atwood I of East Gate, Lewes, 1781-1812, watchmaker to the King & Queen.
It would seem that there were at least two generations of makers with this name.
The first William Atwood is listed as working in 1781 and Loomes lists William as still working in 1828. William (I) is listed as 'Watchmaker to the King and Queen', so it is probable that William made and retailed both Clocks and Watches. In 1812, William was recorded as working at 14 East Gate Lane, Lewes.
The second William Atwood, son of the above maker and his wife Fanny, was born on the 28th May 1795. He married twice, in 1817 and again in 1824. From at least 1823 to 1832 he was at 184 High Street, Lewes. William was declared bankrupt in May 1833. At the time he was a watch maker and silversmith. The shop was then taken over by John Barnett and still run as a Jewellers Shop.
By 1839 William was trading as an ironmonger under the name of Atwood and Wimble at 15 High Street, Lewes.
